    I carry it in a dual sheath with my griptillian with mod. sheepsfoot blade as a work rig.

    Totally agree with you there, you just need the right tool...a car antenna will work if you know how to use it.

    +1 for the res-Q-me tool. Can't put it in the knife category but it does have a razor blade for seat belts. I'm told the spring for the window punch will wear out eventually, however, I've used it while working at least 4 times and I've had no problems. Blade has been used when training and still holds it edge. $9.99 is a good price for any useful tool. One is on my gear and one is on my key chain for personal use.

    Hmmm,

    Read this earlier today.
    Came home from choir practice and a meeting to watch the news on the bridge across the Mississippi River in Minneapolis.

    I cross a bridge almost every day. Same for wife and my children.

    I guess I'll be flamed for this, but hook blades are far too limited in their application, scissors are more practical. The sheep's foot design like a Spyderco Salt or Atlantic are more practical, rounded dull back of blade elevates from skin while leaving a large straight or combination edge available for cutting more material faster. Sometimes a rescue knife might be needed for wider varitey of tasks...

    Jammed seatbelts are extremely rare, clothing and other bulkier material represent the larger problem.

    Interesting thread as to where it's gone. I never really thought I'd ever bother with a rescue knife of some kind, but I recently picked up another Boker (I've sold 2 Subcoms to different members on this forum). I got the Rescom as a money clip. When I used a small knife (Or one of the Subcoms), I found that I didn't use the blade much, because it was just easier to use one of the other knives that I carry on my person. Anyways, I figured the Rescom would make a good money clip & it's already been helpful (& I've just had it for only a couple days).
